Hello, what is the difference between a Fender Jaguar and Jazzmaster...they look pretty similar to me, other than the Jaguar has a metal plate for switches and the Jazzmaster doesn't.

I think the scale length on the jazzmaster is like 1 1/2 " bigger, and the jaguar has different circuitry, namely the 'strangle' to cut through with more treble.

The jaguar has 22 frets as well, jazzmaster has 21

The controls on both of these guitars dont make sense to me...The slider swithes are for the neck(volume/tone) and the knobs are for the bridge(volume/tone)? And why is there a pickup selector, and a pickup on/off switch(on Jazzmaster), are these just the same?
Also, on the jaguar, the 3 switches that choose what pickup is on only work when the bridge is selected?? Why would you need to turn the neck pikup on/off if your only using the bridge?
sorry if this is confusing but im deciding if i want to build one of these guitars and which one...
Is the body shape the same???

How about the main difference in pickup types.
Jaguar = single coil
Jazzmaster = P90

Jazzmaster pickups aren't P90s. they are similar to p90s, but different.
